“Superb food and wine”
Reviewed 17 September 2012

We eat here last week. Yes, it is expensive, but the food is worth it. The foie gras was excellent - melts in the mouth. Two different fish dishes (lobster and Huss) both excellent and delicious veal. All beautifully presented and very accurately cooked. The food was accompanied by wines chosen by the sommelier, mostly local and all good. This is food cooked to the very highest standard and it would stand up against any restaurant in Europe. Best meal we've had in Germany.

“Biergarten in the volkspark at the Hotel Favorite...It's a rip off”
Reviewed 27 May 2011

This place (Biergarten, not the restaurant) is a rip off. It is very expensive whatever you consume and the staff is not professional enough (all staff except of the barkeeper seemed like high school students on a summer job) for the amount you pay. Also the facility (table, chair and the decoration) seems not to be taken a good care and some tables are partly filthy because the staff is not going around often enough to clean the finished tables. It's really a shame indeed because the hotel Favorite is regarded as a good address so it is rather image breaking when they keep on going like this and the frustrated customer like me spreading a bad critic about it. Anyway at this moment I wouldn't recommend anyone to sit there and go through the torture.
